Danielle Lloyd went on to win other contests and came first runner-up in Queen of the World. She won Miss England, but attracted controversy when she was stripped of her Miss Great Britain title after it appeared she dated one of the judges, Teddy Sheringham, before winning.

She revealed in Eve about how Teddy Sheringham had bought her a £7,000 pair of Jimmy Choo shoes before the contest.
